Police: Missing cellphone leads to gun-pointing
Salisbury Police report that a man threatened someone with a gun when he could not find his cellphone.
According to the report, Dennis James Wilkes, 60, told police that he was in the basement of his Lloyd Street home just after midnight Wednesday when three men walked into his house.
Wilkes said that he knew one of the men, Graham Forod Hosch, 32, but only knew the other two by nicknames. According to the report, Hosch, who Wilkes said appeared to be under the influence of some substance, demanded Wilkes tell him where Hosch’s missing cellphone was.
Wilkes told Hosch he didn’t know anything about the phone. Hosch then allegedly held a chrome colored revolver to Wilkes’ head and asked about the phone again. Wilkes reported that he pushed the gun away, but Hosch allegedly held it to his head again.
Wilkes said that his three grandchildren, who were in the house at the time of the incident, called the phone number Hosch gave them, but no phone rang in the house. Wilkes reported that Hosch and the other two men left after that.
Hosch was charged with assault by pointing a gun, and was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $2,500 secured bond. Hosch does not have any previous charges in North Carolina.
